Stormy Weather in the Eastern US Right Now (So Scary)
You can't tell from these pictures (that are a little grainy because they were taken on my iPod), but there is stormy weather out here right now and it is scary. Please keep the Eastern United States in your prayers tonight. There are going to be a lot of people without power. A lot of trees falling. Tornadoes. (Though they're not supposed to come our way, thank goodness. I hope.) There have already been reports of ping pong ball sized hail (update: golf ball sized) and huge trees falling down and thousands without power. These storms are so scary.
Bryan just came down while I was writing this and told me that the rain is almost gone here already. Thank heavens. But I know this storm is much, much worse elsewhere. There will surely be terrible stories to come. So please pray for those in the path of this storm. It's much less scary in the comfort of our own home (especially since we have a basement and we still have power right now), but I'm sure there are thousands of people out driving in it and it is hellishly scary. I know.
Mom, please stop praying that we'll move back west. These storms just might be convincing enough.
Sigh. Anyway. Weather can be so scary and so fickle. Think happy, hopeful thoughts for the thousands who are living that reality right now.
And, on a happier note...
It's Bryan's birthday today. 26 on the 26th! A golden birthday to remember.
